Hatton hit for six as Rams run riot.


Rams started with the same 11 that started last week. With Lewis in goal, Thomas at RB, Mia and Ben at Centre of defence and Josh on the left of defence.

Tom just in front of the back four, David on the left, Mitchell on the Right, Rhys in the middle, with Brett and Harry in attack. Alex, Adam and Callum started as the subs.

Rams started brightly and forced the first effort early on. It didn't take long for Harry to get the his and the Rams first with a neat finish wide of the advancing Hatton keeper after latching on to a brilliant through ball from Mitchell. Quickly followed by Rams second, also coolly taken by Harry linking up well with Brett..

All over the field the Rams for the second week running battled really well, but needed to use their head more rather than letting it bounce. Any rare Hatton attacks were brilliantly met by Lewis who advanced off his line expertly on numerous occassions.

Half Time

Rams 2 - 0 Hatton.

Alex replaced Rhys, Adam replaced David and Call slotted in at RB in place of Josh.

With the introduction of Alex our attacking threat was upped and a quick hat-trick ensued, with a good follow up goal from Josh sandwiched in between.

With the game won it was time to change things round a bit, Mia and Ben moved in to attack and Harry and Alex dropping to centre half. Various other changes followed. David and Mia unlucky not to get on the score sheet. A brilliant goal line clearance from Brett ensured Lewis kept his clean sheet.

Late in the game a very harsh Red card was produced, Alex used his pace and strength to get across to the Hatton winger and timed his challenge to perfection to win the ball, but unfortunatley he got a lot of the player too and was shown a straight red when perhaps a yellow would have sufficed.

Another great team performance today from the Rams. Some great battling and determination and some neat inter play.

Full Time

Rams 6 - 0 Hatton.

Player of the match today went to Lewis who commands his box so well and is off his line brilliantly. Also a mention to Mitchell who had a fantastic first half and his through balls for Harry were spot on. And finally to Brett, who used his strength today and made a brilliant goal line clearance second half.

Black out winner - Tony Connor.


Many thanks again for your great support. To Martin for running the line and Lyn n Nicky for doing the coffees n cakes.
